I am extremely grateful to have been allowed this opportunity and recognize how much of a privilege it is to be allowed into such a community and form of work that is so meaningful and progressive.”

“I think we really are making a difference in the way education is envisioned and enacted on this campus.

I think we also bring our own priorities and values into this work, discussing issues of diversity, different learning styles, and topics to consider with our faculty partners, thus having a say in what we learn and how.”
